I’m delighted to recognize her many contributions to our clients and our firm and look forward to her continued growth and success.”

Currently serving as an account executive, Hilliard directly assists several of the firm's clients and provides technical and administrative services in support of client executives working on numerous other accounts. Based in the Washington, D.C. office, Hilliard joined Ames & Gough in 2015.

Before joining Ames & Gough, Hilliard held a position as an insurance account manager at BB&T Insurance Services in Fairfax, VA.

She initially served as a systems coordinator and receptionist before earning promotions to licensing coordinator in 2003 and commercial lines account executive two years later.
